What is a Locksmith?

A brief search of news headlines indicates that home invasions are on the rise. In fact it is not high priced, luxury homes that are the main targets, but generally the home invasions are targeting almost every level of income and any kind of neighborhood. While this is disconcerting and frightening, there are many ways for homeowners to protect themselves against such issues.

There are many common sense answers to preventing home invasion crimes, and then there are additional methods and tools that can help homeowners. The common sense issues include:

o Never opening a door to a stranger - convicted home invasion criminals talk frequently about how unexpected a home invasion crime is to the victims. Many open their doors without hesitation, giving the burglars immediate entrance. Installing peepholes and motion sensor lights can eliminate the need to open a door to a stranger.

o Integrated video - some modern security systems allow for video integration along with the other monitoring features. Even "dummy" or fake cameras can serve as a deterrent to a home invasion

o Pet and child immunity - most modern security systems are able to detect between the body heat and movements of a pet or a small child, and most are able to be activated when the homeowners are at home. With both features a homeowner and their family can be effectively protected against forced entry and the potential for violent crime.


Modern Exterior Front Doors For Homes

Recently, there was a high profile home invasion in Atlanta where a mother and two daughters were killed. The husband survived the vicious attack. It happened in a well- to-do, relatively crime free neighborhood, to a respected medical doctor and his family. This horrendous attack became an extremely high profile case and ended up being broadcast all over national television.

One national talk show had three experts discussing the case and home invasions in general. After about 20 minutes of conversation that really was quite superficial, I came away with a few steps people can do to help themselves. However, the general consensus seemed that there wasn't too much we can do to stop home invasions. I was taken aback as this simply is not true. There are many positive actions we can take to protect ourselves.

I've listed some effective tips that work to curtail, limit or stop home invasions. You don't have to use all of them to be effective; you can use one or you can utilize them all.

There are actually more things you could do to help yourself, but the tips mentioned cover all the major areas, except the most important one--lock your doors! So many families, mostly in "good neighborhoods" do not lock their doors. Countless instances of home burglary, rape and death have occurred because doors were left unlocked and predators had an easy way in. This is a simple fact most people do not know. We live in a mobile society where a bad neighborhood is just a short ride away from a good neighborhood.

Like any thing in life, solutions to problems come about from taking action. If you're concerned for your family's safety regarding home invasions, follow some of the easy tips mentioned and you'll certainly be better off.
